it is pretty bad. but hey not everything went well. and the fact they tried speaks volumes about a band who were at their peak in terms of confidence if not ability...

pretty bad indeed...worse than Samba???

As much as I enjoy Pig, he should've left Hey Jude alone. Out of both his "comfort zone" and his vocal range.

True, but the rest of that show is pretty fine. Just turn it off early... ;-)

Yep--at least they waited til the end to do it!

You know, what's bizarre is that it is a "Donna-esque" event (ie, we now seem to know that even she hears what she did back then and cringes, and everyone offers input as to how it happened that she would be off key, irritating, etc.).

So, though we know that Ron was not as "quality control conscious" as the rest of the band (I mean really--Jerry and Bob and Phil are always going on about the monitors...suggesting quite obviously that they had to hear themselves so they'd know if they were "off" and so on), but how could this have happened? Did Ron say "hey, I can do THAT" and no one immediately observed, or at least after he sang one verse, "ahem, NO, you cannot!" or even just hinted at that? Did they finally tell him after a few more times--well, the two times anyhow (did they practice it?)? Did he realize it on his own?

Interesting...
